“A fierce and lively book. … This is one of those rare books that could make people think about their intimate lives in a new way.” — New York Times Book Review
“A rousing defense of imprudent ardor and romantic excess. … It’s difficult to deny that [Nehring] is on to something.” — Wall Street Journal
A thinking person’s “guide” that makes the case for love in an age both cynical about and fearful of strong passion. Bold and challenging, A Vindication of Love has inspired praise and controversy, and brilliantly reinvigorated the romance debate. A perfect choice for readers of Alain de Botton’s How Proust Can Change Your Life and Pierre Bayard’s How to Talk About Books You Haven’t Read.
